Posted Jul 19, 2022 - Requisition No. 99602

Bloomberg runs on data and technology. In Global Data, we’re responsible for on-boarding, analyzing, applying, and supplying it to help answer our clients’ questions. We manage data and workflow processes on the Bloomberg Law platform to help our clients solve problems such as how frequently a judge has ruled against summary judgment in similar cases or which group of cases cite to a specific legal principle. Our data also provides our clients with analysis, which allows them to determine whether a case is still valid for legal filings or if there is a key case missing from their legal arguments. We analyze data so our teams can turn it into insights for our users.

Bloomberg is committed to diversity. It drives our innovation. At Bloomberg, you'll have the opportunity to go above and beyond and to take risks. You'll be a part of an organization that is entering new markets, launching new ventures, and pushing boundaries.
